Piccolo's, Traditional Denver Favorite

Always crowded whenever you visit, good selection of choices on the menu from Italian to Mexican food. Too many tables too close together, noise level is too loud. And the food is only average so I don't understand why people are willing to wait so long.

Good variety of food - excellent variety! We had Italian and Mexican dishes to go, and had a great meal. I'll be sure to stop by on my next trip!

This by far one of the best restaurants in Denver. We always ask where the locals eat and the bell hop said, Piccolo's! It's a mexican/Italian restaurant. We had pasta; which is homemade! We will definitely visit this restaurant again. Clean atmosphere and great customer service!

They can't make up their mind if they are Mexican or Italian. Should have known when the salsa tasted like marinara sauce. Not sure what the bartender is doing, but they are NOT making a house margarita! Ok if you are starving or don't want to drive; however, I think I might have enjoyed the Burger King delivery more than... More

While there is nothing on the menu that I particularly dislike, nothing stands out either. It's convenient to the theater for a pre-movie meal, but I would not go out of my way to make a point of eating here.

I've been going to Piccolo's for 6 years now, when visiting Denver. Food is always good and service is friendly and efficient. Some in our group get a Mexican dish while others get Italian. Seasoned chips with salsa and bread are brought over to munch on right away. The restaurant is usually crowded but generally, if there's a wait, it's... More

Perhaps the patio would have been a better place, but sitting in the overcrowded dining room was a really noisy experience, even early on a Saturday evening. Tables are really crowded together, such that even walking between them is a problem. The food, from salad to gnocchi to minestrone soup were each average at best. Service was poor, except when...

My family has been going to Piccolo's ever since it had 2 locations. It sounds weird...Mexican-Italian but it works for the family that one wants spaghetti and the other a smothered Burrito. They give you FREE seasoned chips and salsa and delicious rolls! They also have a party room available in the back. The staff is always kind and accommodating.

I had Italian and my wife had a Mexican dish, neither of us liked our meal. Locals might like this place, but we will not be going back.
